How old is she? Have you tried bringing her to the bathroom when you go?

She is 2 and i have tried. I have gone as far as taking her potty out and trying to have her sit while i sit. She just ends up standing up and trying to take it apart.

maybe you need to let go of the baby potty and go straight to the big one and help her or get one of those kid things you put on the big potty so she dosnt fall in

Oh I see - it kind of sounds like she's not ready for it yet. I would persnally give it a little rest for now, when she's ready you won't have any big issues. I have a two year old who isn't ready for it either - I've tried too. Her pedi told me what I told you. :)

Kid potty's never worked with my kids. They wanted the real potty or nothin'! Also, I didn't potty train my kids until they wanted to.

She's too young. Try again at 2 1/2. Don't drive both you and her crazy.

Let her play with it.  It will help her get comfortable with it when she's ready to use it.

Just try again later. Don't push it.

Doesn't sound like she's ready. Wait until she wants to be potty trained... It's much easier!
